I go through periods of not sleeping well and I'm in one now. It was after midnight when I went to sleep last night and I kept waking up in the wee hours this morning. That's three nights now of disturbed sleep which leaves me feeling like a zombie.
I try to have a relaxing evening with no stimulation, I cut out caffeine in the afternoon and I take 100 mg amitriptyline and 1 1/2 mg xanax before going to bed. This normally works for me. If I wake up at 4 am, which seems to be the magic time, I can take another xanax.
Like I said this normally works for me. I know I took my xanax last night but it didn't feel like I did. I will cut out caffeine earlier today and hopefully get a good night sleep tonight. I hate feeling like I'm in a daze all day and I can't nap during the day.
luv and hugs
